Would somebody be so kind as to point me in the right direction at Lowes or Home Depot as to the best way to have a power strip or box in my safe?

My electrical knowledge isn't that great.

Links to parts I need to buy would be great.

Yep.

Drill a hole in bottom, back, or side, use the grommet, which will swell, and seal in case of fire, insert wire, and hook to outlet.

Works great.

TSC, Gander Mtn, Cabela's all should have them.

Local place has these for 40 bucks.

Why not just buy the components at Lowes? Could probably get it all for less than 15 bucks.
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 10:01:51 AM EST
A lot cheaper through Amazon, on gas, no tax, no time, if it is over 25, no shipping. Or order something to get it over 25.00 total.

i doubt lowes would have the fire proof grommets....
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 11:57:41 AM EST
I certainly wouldn't.

If you had a small electrical leak, it could flood the entire inside of the safe with electrons.

How would you like to open your safe some day, and have a hundred gallons of electrons come spilling out?
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 12:04:51 PM EST
I forget what I used but I believe it was components from Lowes like mentioned above. I also have a network drop in there for a backup hard drive. As far as sealing it you can always use some fire stop cauck.

No reason AT ALL. It's easy.

I took a standard surge strip and cut the plug off, passed through, then replaced the plug.

Replacement plugs are very common, and there's a wide range of quality and price. You could do it for just a few bucks.

I replace a fair number of plugs on stuff at work, and I prefer the beefy Leviton plugs, but you probably won't be beating this one up, and about the cheapest thing they have at lowes or HD or maybe even walmart will do ya.

Except, if you do not use it, or something like it, you will lose your UL Fire rating, and if you have a fire, the insurance will not pay off.

It sates on the packaging that it retains your UL rating.

Oh now I get it, we're talking dirt talk

Just put your fleshlight in the safe
Link Posted: 10/26/2013 2:29:33 PM EST
drill a hole
stuff a grommet in it
take whatever powerstrip you can get your hands on and undo the screws on the back
unmount the wires where they connect on the inside
stuff the wire through the hole you drilled in the safe (plug on the outside silly)
reconnect the powerstrip
be done with it

its 50/50 as to if whatever powerstrip you pick up first has screws holding the wires in place or if they are soldered... if they are soldered cut them off about 2" from where they are connected and strip 1/2" off of the ends then just use wire nuts (orange) to reconnect everything... you might have to do a lil smushing to get everything fit but i have faith in you...

total cost
10 minutes
$0.50

I drilled a hole in the back of my safe and sealed the penetration with red fire caulk. I now have my NAS inside my safe. Now I need some type of lighting.....
